Elevation problems

Post by bofler »



Since I moved from 700 ft of elevation in Kansas to 7000 ft of elevation in New Mexico I've been having some problems. In Kansas, the bike would start up and have a good idle quickly. In New Mexico, I have to pull the choke for about a minute to get the engine running well enough to not stumble and stop. Once it's heated up a bit, no problem. Is this just a problem of elevation or should I be fixing something?
